Be part of the largest group rating program in southwest Ohio. ChamberComp™ offers two group rating programs: Group Experienced Rating, and Group Retrospective Rating. Combined these programs are saving Cincinnati Chamber members over $31.6 million in Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) premiums.
- This program provides a discount, shown on your premium statements, up to the maximum of 53%. That’s immediate savings on each payment to the BWC! The better your claims history, the more you can save.
- More than 3,700 Cincinnati Chamber participants save over $15.4 million in this program — that’s an average of just over $4,100 per participant.
- Commonly referred to as, “group retro,” this program provides a refund to qualified participants and has proven to be a valuable option for companies who may not qualify for the highest group rating discounts. Although participants need to wait for their refund to be paid by the BWC, current participants are expecting a 56-62% refund.
- Nearly 660 Chamber participants are projected to receive refunds of over $16.2 million – that’s an average of more than $24,500 per participant.

The State of Ohio allows associations like the Cincinnati Chamber to pool their members into large groups, then treats each group as if it were a large company, offering premium savings that are otherwise available only to large companies with good claims history. Employers in group rating are billed by the state and pay their premiums directly to the state. Group rating is simply a way to achieve lower rates.
Sheakley, the Cincinnati-based administrator of ChamberComp™, determines eligibility for participants using company claims and payroll records provided by the state. Because ChamberComp™ is the largest program in southwestern Ohio, there are more group options for your company within the program, which could mean better savings than smaller programs.
